"Too bad my local sells the 2008 for around 23 dollars. I have been tempted but never submitted. Does anyone know where I can try the previous years for a more reasonable price? I am interested in 07 and 05 especially."
I am an actor and a costume/ clothing designer, a props designer, metal worker, set designer, stage hand... Whatever else brings in money or keeps me entertained.
None of that is the point though.
I'm not all that complicated. I love to read and learn so the chances are we will have something to talk about. Got a question? Ask it. I'll answer or I'll counter with "do you really want to know that?"

What cigar accessories do you own?
A basic Spanish cedar 50ct humidor. Cooler-dor. A travel humidor. It's not bad for transportation but not for long term storage. The seal is too good and over humidifies the sticks after a long time. A new 2009 Cfest humidor signed by Rocky Patel. A 2010 Cfest humi signed by Pepin Garcia. My old bullet cutter decided to go on vacation without leading a forwarding address but a buddy gave me a nice xikar punch to replace it. I am mostly using the freebie firebird cutter from cfest but I have a credit card cutter in my wallet at all times. Various, cheap lighters both soft and torch.
Beyond that cigars I am a pipe smoker and also love my hookahs. I have a decent little brier churchwarden, a churchwarden gifted to me and carved by my uncle and a handful of hookahs. One stainless steel Egyptian, two khalil mamoon trimetal Egyptians, two Mya Sarays, a Magdy Zidan and a solid brass Syrian. Nothing goes through any of these beyond tobacco.
